About the University

Founded in 1871, Geneseo is one of the premier public liberal arts colleges in the country. Nationally recognizedfor excellence and value in the liberal arts, Geneseo is known for its exceptional faculty, its welcoming atmosphere, and its reputation for producing fiercely loyal alumni.

Located on 220 acres in the historic Village of Geneseo, a short drive from Rochester and Buffalo, Geneseo offers a uniquely warm, familial environment for learning and discovery. The campus embodies the traditions of northeastern colleges with its brick walkways, shade trees and flourishing ivy.

Geneseo offers 54 undergraduate majors, graduate programs in accounting and education, and an array of dual degree and international study programs. Our undergraduate research grants program enables students to engage in a wide variety of research with Geneseo faculty members, and present papers at regional and national meetings.

The Geneseo Athletics program is another point of pride on campus. With 20 NCAA Division III teams, many of which are highly ranked, Geneseo stands out among comparably sized colleges. During the 2016-17 academic year, Geneseo finished 13th in the Learfield Sports Director’s Cup standings, which measures the overall excellence of the nearly 450 Division III athletic programs in the nation.
